Tunisia and Egypt to Kill Islamic Banks In Emerging North Africa Markets
Tunisia has undergone increasing economic liberalization over the last decade: In the 2010-2011 World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report, it was ranked as the most competitive country in Africa, as well as the 32nd most economically competitive country globally. North Africa’s large Muslim populations are a vast business opportunity for Islamic banking and other businesses.
Contrary to popular belief, the world’s finances are controlled by privately-owned “central banks” masquerading as federal government banks in nearly every country in the world [The U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, ruled that The Federal Reserve (U.S.' central bank) was privately owned in 680 F.2d 1239, LEWIS v. UNITED STATES of America, No. 80-5905]. Read More
In a shocking act of mass public deception, Fox News attempted to skew Ron Paul’s 2011 CPAC straw poll win by representing it with footage from the previous year’s CPAC event, at which Mitt Romney supporters had loudly booed the result, another example of the continuing dirty tricks campaign being waged against Paul by the establishment media.
Congressman Paul replicated his 2010 victory over Mitt Romney by defeating the former Governor of Massachusetts for a second consecutive year at the annual CPAC conference.
However, before anchor Bill Hemmer introduced a segment concerning the story, Fox News played a clip of the 2010 announcement of the poll results, during which Mitt Romney supporters had loudly booed Ron Paul’s victory, passing off last year’s footage as representative of this year’s event.

Newt Gingrich and Dick Cheney
Confronted at CPAC 2011
In a hallway at CPAC, Lane and Rudkowski approached Gingrich, with Rudkowski noting that while Gingrich is on record attacking 9/11 truth activists, calling them “insane.” Rudkowski is heard telling Gingrich: “What you do at Bohemian Grove is pretty insane. Any comment?” Read More
Ok...This is friggin ridiculous!
The House approved Monday a measure that would extend key provisions of the Patriot Act through December. Their vote came less than a week after House Republicans suffered an embarrassing defeat when the same bill was brought up under fast-track rules and failed by seven votes.
The measure passed Monday night on a vote of 275 to 144, two fewer than it received last week. But this time, no two-thirds super-majority was required for passage, only a simple majority. Twenty-seven Republicans joined most Democrats on Monday to vote "no," while 65 Democrats joined with most Republicans to support the measure. Read More
WHERE is the 'change we can believe
in' President Obama???
Remember how President Obama, while campaigning, promised to reject the questionable spying practices of the federal government of President Bush? Yeah, forget all that. Over the past two years, we've seen time and time again that he's actually extended those abuses even further. The latest to come out is that the Justice Department is now claiming that the FBI has the right to get phone records on any call made from inside the US to an international number without any oversight. You may recall a few years back that there was a similar controversy, when it came out that the FBI would regularly just call up phone companies and ask for records -- despite the fact that this violates certain laws designed to protect consumer privacy. Sometimes, they would just use post-it notes. Read More
That assertion was revealed - perhaps inadvertently - by the department in its response to a McClatchy Newspapers request for a copy of a secret Justice Department memo. Read More
Today, the DOJ's Office of the Inspector General issued a long awaited report on the FBI's use of 'exigent letters' to obtain phone records. While the report has many interesting and shocking revelations, three issues jumped out at us: Post-it note process; a secret new legal theory; and the need for accountability for the telecoms.

Can you say Coprorate-run Government???
It's been a hell of a week for genetically modified crops and for agricultural overlord Monsanto.
First, their old buddy Tom Vilsack, Secretary of Agriculture, gutted protections for organic farmers and allowed the unrestricted approval of GM alfalfa.
Now the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection (APHIS) division has extended deregulation to GM sugar beets as well...
Monsanto engineered the GM sugar beets to withstand a soaking of their prized weed killer Roundup, or glyphosate. Read More
China’s poor treated to fake rice
made from plastic: report
China's history with food safety is a rocky one, but even in the annals of robbery and abuse, this will go down in infamy.
Various reports in Singapore media have said that Chinese companies are mass producing fake rice made, in part, out of plastic, according to one online publication Very Vietnam.
The "rice" is made by mixing potatoes, sweet potatoes and plastic. The potatoes are first formed into the shape of rice grains. Industrial synthetic resins are then added to the mix. The rice reportedly stays hard even after being cooked. Read More
Unemployment Rate is a Statistical Lie
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released the latest unemployment figures last Friday. There was a stunning drop to 9% from 9.4%. How did that happen? Is the economy really getting better or is the government up to its old statistical tricks. According to the mainstream media, the economy is getting better and the so-called recovery is alive and well. Here’s how the Associated Press reported the story, “The unemployment rate is suddenly sinking at the fastest pace in a half-century, falling to 9 percent from 9.8 percent in just two months — the most encouraging sign for the job market since the recession ended. More than half a million people found work in January. A government survey found weak hiring by big companies. But more people appear to be working for themselves or finding jobs at small businesses.”
I missed this one
when it was published...This is truly scary!
The Obama administration has become so concerned about the slowing pace of new drugs coming out of the pharmaceutical industry that officials have decided to start a billion-dollar government drug development center to help create medicines.
The new effort comes as many large drug makers, unable to find enough new drugs, are paring back research. Promising discoveries in illnesses like depression and Parkinson’s that once would have led to clinical trials are instead going unexplored because companies have neither the will nor the resources to undertake the effort.

So...They are already running damage
By now, many of you have read the recent New York Times article or related news coverage, about NIH’s plan to establish the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).
While we are pleased that the news media have recognized NIH’s efforts as a significant development for translational research, the Times article contains some misleading statements that we would like to clarify. Those statements suggest that a much larger shakeup of NIH is underway than is actually contemplated. Read More

State officials are at odds over what to do with $189 million of federal money intended to help Missouri’s public schools pay their staff.
Some Republican senators want to reject it as a symbolic statement of discontent with the rising federal deficit. Some have suggested saving it until next year. House budget leaders have proposed using it to replace state money already allocated for schools. Read More

The United States can't fully recover from the worst recession in decades until hiring improves, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Thursday.
The economy is strengthening, and will likely grow at a faster pace this year as more confident consumers and companies spend more, Bernanke said in prepared remarks to the National Press Club. But he warned that the growth won't be strong enough to quickly drive down high unemployment, and it could take several years before it returns to more normal levels. Read More

Vinson: UNCONSTITUTIONAL and
The 26 plaintiff states in Florida v. Department of Health and Human Services got a favorable ruling today from Judge Roger Vinson in the Northern District of Florida.
Vinson has ruled that the "individual mandate" is unconstitutional and cannot be severed from the rest of the law. Therefore, his ruling states that the entire health care law should be struck down.
The fourth federal judge to rule on President Obama's health care law is expected to issue his decision from Florida Monday.
U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson's ruling will decide the biggest of the many court challenges to Obama's hallmark accomplishment, which now has 26 state attorneys general backing the suit.
Opponents of the Affordable Care Act specifically target two key aspects of the law. First, that the "individual mandate," which requires every American have health insurance (or suffer a tax penalty) exceeds the constitutional powers of Congress and violates the Commerce Clause. Secondly, that forcing the states to expand their Medicaid programs unconstitutionally infringes on states' rights.
World Trade Center Occupancy FOIA *
It was a bit like a scene from “Minority Report,” the 2002 Tom Cruise movie that featured genetically altered humans with special powers to predict crime.
In October, the Chicago Police Department’s new crime-forecasting unit was analyzing 911 calls for service and produced an intelligence report predicting a shooting would happen soon on a particular block on the South Side.
Three minutes later, it did, police officials say.
That got police Supt. Jody Weis thinking.
He wondered if the department could produce intelligence reports even quicker. Read More
Not all the mysterious bird die-offs that
have been witnessed around the globe recently are due to unexplained
causes. A recent mass die-off event witnessed in Yankton, South Dakota
was traced back to the USDA which admitted to carrying out a mass
poisoning of the birds.
After hundreds of starlings were found dead in the Yankton Riverside Park, concerned citizens began to investigate. Before long, a USDA official called the local police and admitted they had poisoned the birds. "They say that they had poisoned the birds about ten miles south of Yankton and they were surprised they came to Yankton like they did and died in our park," says Yankton Animal Control Officer Lisa Brasel, as reported by KTIV.

Florida gun owners may soon have the right to carry their weapons in the open if a group of lawmakers has its way. Senate Bill 234 would allow gun owners with concealed weapons permits to begin carrying weapons openly. More than 40 states already allow it.
"Those people who have rigorous

Administration's New Proposed Gun Regulation for Border States Met With
The Obama administration's plan to force new reporting requirements on thousands of gun dealers near the Mexico border is under fire from members of his own party.
At least three Democrats in the Senate and several more in the House are voicing opposition to a proposed regulation from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that would require about 8,500 gun dealers in four states – California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas – to report gun sales of two or more high-powered rifles sold within five consecutive business days.

Housing Market Slips Into
As the economy
revs back to life, with signs of hiring on the horizon, the housing
market is being left behind like Macaulay Culkin in “Home Alone.”
In the past few years,
we’ve all been careful to choose our words carefully, not calling it a

inappropriate use of the “D” word — Depression.
He who controls the food...
The US embassy in Paris advised Washington to start a military-style trade war against any European Union country which opposed genetically modified (GM) crops, newly released WikiLeaks cables show.
In response to moves by France to ban a
Monsanto GM corn variety in late 2007, the ambassador, Craig Stapleton,
a friend and business partner of former US president George Bush, asked
Washington to penalise the EU and particularly countries which did not
support the use of GM crops.
People’s retirement savings are a
convenient source of revenue for governments that don’t want to reduce
spending or make privatizations. As most pension schemes in Europe are
organised by the state, European ministers of finance have a facilitated
access to the savings accumulated there, and it is only logical that
they try to get a hold of this money for their own ends. In recent weeks
I have noted five such attempts: Three situations concern private
personal savings; two others refer to national funds.

WHY are we allowing this? WHY is
ANYONE still doing business with Bank of America?
Bank of America will pay $137.3 million to settle allegations that it defrauded schools, hospitals and dozens of other state and local government organizations, federal officials said Tuesday.

Bank of America is accused of depriving
local organizations of millions of dollars by engaging in illegal
behavior when investing the proceeds of municipal bond sales.

A handful of those states, like Wisconsin, are planning to join an existing suit or file one of their own.

waivers...and to bigger companies?
Administration has quietly granted even more waivers to one provision of
the new federal health reform law, doubling the number in just the last
three weeks to a new total of 222.
Applications for waivers from annual limit requirements are reviewed on a case by case basis by Department officials who look at a series of factors including whether or not a premium increase is large or if a significant number of enrollees would lose access to their current plan because the coverage would not be offered in the absence of a waiver.

As Obama administration officials put into place the first major wave of changes under the health care legislation, they have tried to defuse stiffening resistance — from companies like McDonald’s and some insurers — by granting dozens of waivers to maintain even minimal coverage far below the new law’s standards.

disturbing, to say the LEAST!
An expert in the fight against child sexual abuse is raising the alarm about a technique the TSA is reportedly using to get children to co-operate with airport pat-downs: calling it a "game".
Ken Wooden, founder of Child Lures Prevention, says the TSA's recommendation that children be told the pat-down is a "game" is potentially putting children in danger.
Telling a child that they are engaging in a game is "one of the most common ways" that sexual predators use to convince children to engage in inappropriate contact, Wooden told Raw Story. Read More
